Dear Friend and Neighbor,
We hope you had a pleasant holiday season. The approach of summer means we must again ask for your financial support to keep your community volunteer fire department in business. Your support over the years is very much appreciated. More than half of our funding comes from local community donations. You will not receive any phone solicitations benefiting the volunteer fire department. We do not condone or participate in any type of “cold-call” marketing. All donations are 100% tax deductible and are put directly into operating and maintaining this department.
Remember during this season when people are clearing their yards to burn your yard waste safely. Yard waste fires what get out of control contribute to uncontrolled forest fires during this time of year.
Guidelines for safe burning can be found at Florida Division of Forestry's website
The Chaires Capitola VFD will be conducting a boot fund drive on 4/13/2013 at the corner of Bucklake and Mahan. We will also be sending out our annual mail out funding request to your mailboxes within the next couple weeks. Please remember we need your support to help us to continue to provide high quality service to the community.

Chaires Capitola Volunteer Fire Department Offers Fire Prevention Tips
for a Safe and Festive Holiday Season
The Chaires Capitola Volunteer Fire Department Reminds you don’t be a Doofus and be safe while cooking and celebrating this holiday season
For most of us, the holiday season represents a time for family festivities and good cheer. What few of us consider is that the holiday season is a time when there is an increased risk of home fires. According to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), many households engage in holiday activities that serve as some of the leading causes of U.S. home fires, including cooking. Christmas trees, candle usage and holiday decorations also significantly contribute to the seasonal causes of home fires. Add to that the hectic nature of the holidays, when people are trying to accomplish multiple tasks at one time, and the chance for home fires grows even further.
The Chaires Capitola Volunteer Fire Department would like to take a moment to thank the members of our community who have helped with donations during our current fund drive. We have had a very good turn out and the donations continue to come in on a daily basis.
Our fund drive is conducted by a semi-annual mail-out,. We do not make solicitation phone calls. If you receive a phone call stating they are from the Chaires Capitola VFD requesting donations, please contact us at 942-4033 to let us know. We also occasionally conduct boot drives and car washes in or near our territory.
